Vacheron Constantin - Égérie self-winding


Égérie self-winding, entirely attired in gold

Enter the world of “Haute Manufacture”



Vacheron Constantin's watchmaking muse appears in a stunning new variation gracing the wrist with a supple new bracelet in 18K 5N pink gold. Thus attired, this self-winding Égérie model – an ideal companion for both daytime and evening wear – exudes a seductively precious allure.





A bracelet as smooth as a second skin


The Vacheron Constantin ladies’ collection revealed at the beginning of the year has continued to flourish with a new variation of the Égérie self-winding model. Boldly contemporary and delightfully classic, it now pairs its exquisite curves with an 18K 5N pink gold bracelet. Delightfully supple and soft as a second skin, feeling like leather on skin, its links the feminine wrist with infinite elegance, making one almost forget it is even there. Draped entirely in gold, this watch presents a seductive composition, capturing the spirit of the times and perfectly suited to all outfits and every occasion, ranging from super-casual to ultra-formal.





A very stylish look


Inspired by the world of haute couture and the aesthetic sophistication inherited from Vacheron Constantin's heritage, the Égérie self-winding watch celebrates the collection's unique style. Flowing seamlessly into a new 18K 5N pink gold bracelet, its case is a dainty 35 mm 18K 5N pink gold pebble rimmed with 58 diamonds. Its silvered opaline dial features a “pleats” pattern created using the time-honoured tapestry technique. Using a machine dating from 1904 and resembling a pantograph, it is finely engraved thanks to the expertly applied touch of the guillocheur, revealing a subtle play of textures and depth evoking a precious fabric. It is against this backdrop that time performs its fascinating choreography, punctuated by leaf-type hands sweeping across gracefully scripted numerals recalling finely scalloped lace embroidery. Setting a final distinctive touch, the beautifully rounded diamond-set date display is offset along a diagonal line running between Vacheron Constantin's signature and the crown, perkily adorned with a moonstone. This asymmetry enhances the personality of this extremely chic watch with an audacious contemporary twist.





Through its sapphire caseback, the Égérie self-winding model reveals the hand-crafted Côtes de Genève fine watchmaking finishes and delicately openworked oscillating weight – inspired by the shape of the Maltese Cross – equipping the Manufacture self-winding 1088 calibre.





Ten of these watches will be available exclusively on Net-à-Porter as of November 2020, one month before the models arrive in Vacheron Constantin points of sale worldwide.





Summary



Vacheron Constantin is enriching its Égérie women's collection unveiled at the beginning of 2020. Graced with a slender 35 mm 18K 5N pink gold case set with 58 diamonds, the Égérie self-winding model enhances the wrist with a softly flowing 18K 5N pink gold bracelet featuring a mesh-type effect that makes it feel like a second skin. Thus entirely draped in gold, this watch picks up the collection’s key aesthetic and technical identity codes: a silvered opaline dial with a pleated pattern developed after several months of testing and achieved using the time-honoured tapestry technique; an offset date; as well as a Manufacture self-winding movement.
